Helly Tech® is the waterproof/ breathable outer layer between you and the elements. Its unique membrane stops water molecules going in, but lets moisture molecules escape. Keeping you dry from the outside and comfortable on the inside.
How Helly Tech® works
- DWR treated water-repellent outer fabric
- Waterproof and breathable membrane or coating
- Highly breathable inner fabric, mesh or lining
There are 3 Performance Levels
-> Helly Tech Professional: Extremely waterproof and breathable designs and constructions tailored to the needs of professionals. For highly aerobic, extremely wet or unusually long-lasting activities in extremely harsh conditions.
When facing the elements, you need complete confidence in your gear. Helly Tech® Professional state-of-the-art waterproof and breathable technology provides the ultimate protection from the elements. Helly Hansen is worn and trusted by more then 30,000 professional sailors, mountain guides, ski patrollers, instructors and mountain safety personnel around the world.

AUTHENTIQUE MARQUE BLEUE.
Depuis 30 ans, de nombreux marins ont rejoint l'aventure tbs tels que Florence Arthaud, Olivier de Kersauson, Isabelle Autissier ou encore Armel Le Cléac'h.
tbs est aujourd'hui encore partenaire historique sportif et lifestyle de très grands skippers dont Michel Desjoyeaux (double vainqueur du Vendée Globe - Solitaire du Figaro) et plus récemment François Gabart (vainqueur du Vendée Globe 2012).
ANCREE DANS L’UNIVERS OUTDOOR.
Née du sport, tbs trouve rapidement son ancrage dans l’univers « outdoor » : de la terre (sport loisirs, marche active, lifestyle) à la mer (1983 première ligne bateau homme). Les premières lignes textiles voient le jour en 1990.

1964, where it all began!
Unlike most of his contemporaries, Keith Musto was never happy to accept that being cold and wet were necessary inconveniences of sailing: “We sailed in Guernsey sweaters and old flannel trousers for years. You got wet and you accepted it. But, as we progressed up the ladder in terms of competition, we realised that this was a problem that needed to be solved. I went to one or two manufacturers who were making clothing at that time and spoke to them about improving the designs and there wasn’t a lot of interest. We soon made our minds up that although we didn’t know how to make clothing, we’d learn quicker than the manufacturers at the time could catch on to the fact that there was a need and a demand for better clothing. So we started working on what sailors really needed to make conditions better for them.”
